Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday condo in Cruz Bay

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Bathroom, (Sleeps 6)

'The Nest' with views of Cruz Bay (across the street) are magical. All amenities have been selected by the owners to create a five-star experience, complete with a property manager to greet you as your ferry arrives to answer any questions and provide any information you need. Having lived on the island for years, she can provide you with any resources you need to tailor your stay to your specific requirements. She will provide you with information and recommendations for car rentals, water sport rentals, how to find the perfect beach, walking trails or restaurants and must do activities.

'The Nest' at Grande Bay Resort is perfectly situated in the heart of Cruz Bay and you can walk to ferries, shops (including grocery), restaurants, bars, wonderful walking trails and some beautiful beaches such as Honeymoon Beach. You can also catch an open-air taxi which will

shuttle you around the island.

The Grande Bay complex sports St John's only heated pool and spa with a large deck, waterfall and waterfront gym with new equipment.

This three-bedroom home is situated on the corner and has AC, two king beds, two twin beds and a sleeper sofa. All bedrooms have very comfortable beds dressed in luxury linens, wall-mounted flat screen TV's, and I-Pod docking stations. There are two full bathrooms and an excellent floor plan which allows privacy when resting in the bedrooms and ample opportunities to socialize in the living area and patios.

The kitchen has granite countertops, stainless steel appliances and a wrap-around bar for seating. The dining area has a glass-top table and six chairs. There are magnificent views from the wrap-around porch which are visible also from the kitchen/living room. While seated on the patio enjoying your favorite beverage you can watch the ferry/sailboats navigate the harbor and the locals and visitors enjoying the Cruz Bay lifestyle.

This home is the perfect place to enjoy a luxurious stay while accessing some of the most pristine beaches, marvelous walking trails, or partaking of all the water sports you desire. You are only a ferry trip away from other islands should you wish to venture out.

The beauty of St. John is that you can do nothing or go all out and have the vacation of your dreams.

About Jenn

Matt is from the Midwest and Jenn is from the West Coast. We now call Minneapolis home, we are career oriented and love to visit St John when time allows. We've made many new friends on St John and truly enjoy every minute we spend on island. We hope you enjoy our island home as much as we do.

Jenn purchased this condo in 2008

Why Jenn chose Cruz Bay

Location, location, location...we enjoy being within walking distance to all that Cruz Bay and St John have to offer. We are a short 5 minute walk from the ferry or walk down the beach to boat rentals and fantastic restaurants. Our unit is easily accessible by using one flight of stairs so we do not require the elevator.

What makes this condo unique

Being less than a five minute walk to 10 different restaurants and shopping. Every morning we pickup the Lind Point trail and hike to Caneel Bay. We have a beautiful corner unit with a wrap around balcony where we enjoy many meals and the occasional evening cocktail hour.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Matt,



Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful condo. We leave tomorrow but I wanted to take a moment to let you know our vacation was amazing! Everything you could possibly want or need is in your condo. We loved sitting on the balcony overlooking Cruz Bay each morning and night. Beautifully furnished and decorated. Loved having TV's in each bedroom and the living room to lay back and relax at night and watch a little TV after long days at the beaches.



Your kitchen is well equipped with everything anyone could possibly need. And, the condo was very clean. Just beautiful!



Being able to walk to the restaurants, bars, casino, shopping, and taxi's was so convenient. Even though a lot of the restaurants were closed due to low season, we had a fabulous time. The weather was perfect EVERY day. We went to Cinnamon Bay, Maho, and Hawksnest beaches. Maho is our favorite.



We took a catamaran trip to Jost Van Dyke on Kekoa. That was the highlight of our trip. We would highly recommend Kekoa.



Laurie Crandall was fabulous too. We provided her with our grocery shopping list and she stocked the kitchen for our arrival. Nice not to have to run to the grocery store when we arrived.



We hope to come back to St. John in April or May. We'll check your condo's availability soon!.



Thank you again Matt.

Absolutely beautiful and close to town!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely wonderful vacation staying at The Nest!!! We are already planning next years trip!! It is beautiful, so close to town and the balcony view is gorgeous!! It was so nice being able to walk to dinner every night and not have to find a place to park. Also the beach at Wharfside is perfect! Our son played all day, we enjoyed the sun, happy hour was a delight, and we could take my daughter back to the condo to take a nap!! It was best trip to St John yet!!!

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time at the Nest.

Beautiful views overlooking the harbor, walking distance to all the shops and restaurants, and wonderful balcony.

The condo itself was perfect, plenty of space and a nice welcoming environment.

We even spent most of a day of our eight-day trip (more on that in a moment) at the Nest during an unlikely all-day rain, and it was nice to have the condo there, comfortable and relaxing.

When we were to depart, the big snowstorm hit the East Coast, meaning our flight was canceled and we were delayed a day.

The good folks at the Nest put us up for free for a night. Nice touch.

In sum, we would highly recommend anyone staying in St. John to consider the Nest.

They had everything we needed, and we were never short of anything.

Thanks to all the good folks at the Nest!

Nice Condo With Excellent Review- You'll Love It!

  • 4 of 5

My husband, daughter and her family recently stayed for four nights. The unit is everything it says and more. There was plenty of room for all six of us. The kitchen is well equipped and is gorgeous. The beds were comfortable, but could use some new bed covers. There were plenty of bath towels and beach towels. The unit was clean and comfortable. But this place is really all about the location and view. At first I was disappointed to see it was on the first floor, but it turned out to be perfect because the view was so beautiful from there. We sat on the balcony every moment we could. Watching the pelicans diving for fist every morning and really all day was really something. And the location could not be better. You can walk anywhere in Cruz Bay. The beachfront bars and restaurants are only minutes away. The parking spot in the garage was perfect because it's a single spot which makes parking your jeep easy. Lots of beach items are available as well. The pool was very nice, too. Keep in mind that the beach in front of the condo is not where you'll want to swim. It's rather rocky. You won't be disappointed with this condo. Reserve your stay now. I wish we were going back soon.

beautiful condo in great location

  • 5 of 5

the nest is a well maintained and equipped condo with great views. everything as advertized and more. while 4 of our party of 5 spent days touring st john, wife stayed at "home" enjoying all resort amenities and great balcony view. though only 2 baths, arrangements were ideal for sharing or privacy. all enjoyed convenience of short walk into cruz bay for shopping and meals.

loved large covered private parking spot and plenty of quality beach gear in private garage locker. owner was pleasure to deal with. only compliant was lack of dresser/storage cabinet in bedroom with twin beds used by 2 teen granddaughters. didn't matter to them but made for a lot of clutter that we addressed by insisiting they keep their cave door closed!

hope to get back.

Excellent Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week, and our stay was wonderful! For the condo itself, it has a great layout, is furnished nicely, and is stocked with everything you would need. The beds are comfortable, and the condo is clean. The location can't be beat! We loved our short walks to town for dinner and drinks. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again on a future trip!
